Look at the customers image and you can see the true colors of the cases. I love the Persimmon one or the Purple. I haven't decided. I can't get another black one. How would I tell them apart?

I'm using the cover from my first PW on the brand new one. So glad I didn't have to buy another cover.

I have a few 55% Kobo codes left. PM me if you want one.

P.S. if you haven't heard, big 5 books are no longer couponable in the US.

All gone.

It does look like a nice color. It's darkish purple so I think it would work best for me.

If I remember correctly these have gone on sale a few times already. If you're not in a big rush I think the discount was something like 30 - 40%? Might be worth waiting for.

I got my ink blue one with a promo a year ago. I saved 18.98 looking at my invoice. I think it was either a screensaver offer of a amazon local offer. I can't recall now and it doesn't say in my invoice.

I haven't seen a cover offer like that on the paperwhite cover since though.

On another note, I don't think I'll be getting any more boxed sets. I got that Perfect Ten boxed set and I am trying to read a book out of it. The font is all messed up, goes from smaller to larger in the middle of the pages. Its driving me nuts. But I can't split it. There is no file in the split when I do. I gave up. Plus it keeps locking up calibre. Now I am just trying to convert it to a regular mobi and send it over to my kindle to see what it looks like then.
Really a pain in the behind with so many books in one file. I also don't like that I can't see where I am at as it messes up the locations, time read etc.

Way to much trouble to just read.

Game, Set, Match (A Humorous Contemporary Romance) (Love Match) [K] by Nana Malone

Quote:
Sassy contemporary Romance. 99,000 words. This is the revised ebook edition

Off the court, tennis star Jason Cartwright's playboy image is taking a public beating. On the court, he's down forty-love. A knee injury is shutting down his game, and the paparazzi are splashing his love life on every magazine. A comeback is in order, but the makeover he needs to save his faltering career is in the hands of the woman he loved and left fifteen years ago.

While single-mom, Izzy Connors, sees people for who they really are through the lens of her camera, even without it, she knows Jason isn't the star he appears to be. Although his charm and good looks haven't dimmed since he broke her heart, all she sees is his wasted talent and playboy lifestyle.

Can Izzy put the past behind her and help Jason get his game, and his image, back on track? Or will the click of her camera shatter his world as well as his heart?

Well, what about if you vacation, say, in Mexico? Might have to take a trip soon.



Quite a few good deals today.
Free= Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway.

Supposed to be $.99 [geo restricted, double check your price please]
Jet by Jay Crownover. I love her writing, gave this a 4.0, she's autobuy for me.

$.99 Blind Obsession by Ella Frank. I have this one, haven't read it yet but rated very highly at GR [4.2 over 2000 ratings] I have read Exquisite by her and rated it a 4 also.

$.99 Good by S. Walden. This has been on my wishlist since it came out, rated very highly, caution though, sounds like a student/teacher thing.

I was able to spilt it with no problems. I would delete it and redownload it. Sounds like your copy may have corrupted.

I have my travel agent on standby for next month's releases but there were some better deals from the US (Hachette, Loveswept and some Simon & Schuster). Maybe they'll turn it back on again after the 50% codes expire.

I'll try that. I'll delete the ones out of calibre and just port new version in. What happened was that the file is azw. I actually am using instructions you posted a long while back and wrote them down. So I use kindle unpack since its a azw3. Then I open it with the epubsplit plug in and that is when things go wrong. I keep getting error messages and when it does work, all I see in the window of the epub split is a line for each book. I have used that tool in the past and usually I have to highlight from beginning of book to end and then it culls that out somehow. All I get here is a field/line with the titles of the book. 10 of them. So when trying to just highlight that one and split, it acts like its doing it but when I try to open it it tells me there is no ebook file there.

So confused. Its really hard to read that book as the font goes from regular to large to regular to large over and over throughout. But I did already convert the whole big file and turned it into a mobi and the font is still messed up. I even tried with my limited skills of calibre to embed a different font in the whole big file to see if that fixed it. I picked Palatino and it did show up in the publisher font, but it still had the same issue with parts of the text being in larger font than others randomly. Like paragraphs full. So I guess this is above my skill and its some embedded formatting thing in that boxed set and I have no way of fixing that.
Since it was still messed up after converting the whole file to mobi, I just don't see how splitting that one book out and converting is going to fix it either.

I wanted to read "The Laird" that is in that boxed set. Not buying any anymore boxed sets that is for sure. Too much trouble for me to figure this all out and its really stressing me out. My calibre skills don't go beyond dropping the books in with the alf stuff in there, adding covers and such and making columns and virtual shelfs. And converting to mobi. Anything else I don't touch or can figure out anyway.

eta: as I am trying to put a new version in calibre I looked at it in kindle 4 PC and the font is the same messed up there. So its the original file that has some formatting in there and I can't get it out.
